Jason Moran Solo

In the organizer's words:
"Duke Ellington on the 125th"

"It don't mean a thing, if you ain't got that swing" - nothing works without swing, Duke Ellington claimed. A maxim to which every jazz musician is committed, including Jason Moran. The pianist pays tribute to the composer on his 125th birthday with a solo concert.

He is not an avant-gardist, he only charges old things with new ideas, says Jason Moran. So his homage to the unforgettable Duke Ellington is not the usual reminiscence of the good old days. The 49-year-old is one of the few who have creatively processed the hype surrounding the "Young Lions" - the young, conservative interpreters of neo-bop - and developed an independent style. It is to be expected that Moran will present the œuvre of the "Duke" in a completely new light.
